Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you

In relation to the code you mentioned, there are no safety issues that would be related to this. That code is very commonly caused by a low oil level in the engine because this valve is actuated by oil pressure. I would ask her to check the oil level immediately and if it is low, add it until it is full (this car should use a 5w30 synthetic engine oil, if it is available). I hope this information helps!
